Bottle at home. Pours an oily black colour with a creamy and coffee-like, medium head. Nice roast in the aroma along with coffee, chocolate truffles, coffee beans and some lactose. The flavour has more roasted malt and some wood. Has a slick and smooth mouth feel, and a coffee-like medium bitterness. A balanced and solid stout with a nice roasted touch.

I poured a 500ml bottle into a nonic pint glass. There was no freshness date. It cost $4.99 ($0.30 per ounce).
Appearance: Opaque black body with traces of red along the edges. Forms a large, dark tan, foamy head which mostly evaporates and leaves trace lacing on the glass.
Smell: Classic British stout aroma with a dairy-like sweetness and some confectionery scents.
Taste: Beers like St. Peterís Cream Stout remind me of how good a classic, no-frills stout can be. Thereís no chocolate, coffee or intense body here. I do get a pleasantly sweet bouquet of roasted malt, some milky or creamy flavors and significant peanut brittle in the finish. Itís not hugely hopped, though the Fuggle hops, a mainstay of British brewers, do come through at the apex of the swig. Thereís plenty of flavor from start to finish, though I think I do like the ending the best as thereís a significant toffee component to the palette. This is a sweet beer that is not cloying, and well-balanced all around. Believe it or not, this was my first ever St. Peterís brew.
Drinkability: With a soft, comfortable mouthfeel and smooth, tepid texture, St. Peterís Cream Stout is a stout drinkerís ideal beer. Plenty of robust flavor to let you know itís no session beer, yet youíd never figure it for a remotely heavy beer at 6.5% ABV. Itís a pleasurable drinking experience for sure.

Fruh kolsch. Pours very clear yellow. High carbonation. Scent is honey with some honey on top. Palate is somehow soft and prominent taste is honey and very very small hint of hops. Interesting but nothing fantastic.

Bottle bb 09/11/14. Very dark black/brown with tan head. Aroma is coffee with a medicinal edge. Medium to full body with mild carbonation. Nice mouthfeel. I like this - toffee, treacle, hot chocolate, coffee and a bit if root beer too. Mild bitterness. Tasty.

Totally love this beer. The greatest thing about stouts in my opinion is the fact that you can take a small sip of one and the taste will stay in your mouth for a long time. This stout is no exception. To this day it has to be one of the greatest stouts (if not the best) I have ever had the opportunity to drink.
